What is Washi Tape Anyway?

“Washi” actually comes from “wa” which is Japanese and “shi” meaning paper. So, it is Japanese paper tape (that is now made everywhere). And that is exactly what it feels like. It’s got an adhesive quality to it, but to me doesn’t feel as sticky as other tapes – which I like. It still adheres to craft surfaces well and you can put acrylic mediums on top of it.  Source

The best way we can describe washi tape is that it feels like masking tape — very, very pretty masking tape. It’s made of paper, but is not as delicate as you would expect. Plus, it comes in patterns and designs that will make even the most dedicated crafters swoon and varying widths to allow you to create some fun and intricate washi tape designs.  Source
